Description

Revit MEP software can be a very powerful modeling tool that enables you to explore the building design for a mechanical system. Once the energy calculations are done (either natively in Revit or externally), an optimum design for the building air systems needs to be developed. Traditionally, this has been done using a rule-of-thumb approach or by using simple modeling techniques in Revit. With the seamless translation of models between Revit MEP and Autodesk Simulation CFD software, you can quickly explore design alternatives for diffuser layouts in your models. You can compare design scenarios in Autodesk Simulation CFD using various performance metrics and thus determine the most efficient and best possible layout for your building design.
